Re: Composting Toilets vs. Holding Tank

That frothy mess that "disappears" within a few feet is full of nitrogen. When the reefs, and even the sandy bottoms, are covered with a lush growth of algae, then it is causing a problem. So the solution to pollution is dilution, especially in coral reef areas that are naturally devoid of nutrients, is not the answer. However, if the pH drops enough in our oceans, maybe we'll want more raw sewage...
